CFP: Special Issue of Culture, Theory and Critique on music and neoliberalism
Call for Papers Date:
This special issue of CTC will feature articles that shift the mode of inquiry associated with the study of music and capitalism by refocusing attention on music as a social process rather than on the various texts that it generates. As neoliberalism permeates an expressive domain previously thought to have been at least partially shielded from processes of production and consumption, this issue will address the following questions. What has been the impact of neoliberal economic reforms on different music-making environments? How do those engaged in music making, as individuals increasingly regarded as effective agents of economic development, able to negotiate the contradictions associated with neoliberalism? How do neoliberal logics—for instance, those associated with branding, flexibility, self-management, creativity entrepreneurship, and so on—redefine the ways in which individuals conceive of music making as both a social and aesthetic activity? How can an in-depth analysis of these processes contribute to a further understanding of late capitalism that moves beyond those centered on political economy, consumption, and the centrality of commodity fetishism?
Completed essays need to be submitted before May 3, 2013 for full consideration for this special issue.
